My brother always reminds me that he acquires guns but doesn't sell them. I hadn't ever sold a gun until about 18 months ago. I bid on 2 identicle S&W Model 60s in a silent auction and won both. I found a guy in Colorado that was looking for a certain serial number range J-Frame and sold it to him. So I effectively lost my selling a gun virginity.

I just sold 2300 rounds of Federal 22 LR ammo that I don't like (it patterns like a shotgun out of the 2 rifles I shoot the most) as well as 3 rifles. A Remington model 33, single shot bolt action from 1935, a Marlin 60 from 1987 and a Glenfield 25 from 1974 are gone from my safe.

But I now have some cash for at least 5 more project rifles. Let the hunt begin!

I sometimes wish I didn't sell the S&W, but I used the money and bought a 6" S&W 28-2 Highway Patrolman.

The 3 rifles weren't being used.

I don't get all that attached to mine, sell one I don't use to fund one I want, usually.
I do have a couple I won't sell though. Dad's old .32Spl deer rifle is one.
That's what I'm moving too. There are a few "family" or "legacy" guns that will never be sold. I'm starting to look at the others and see if there is a true attachment.

I've owned 33 different, have 29 of my own and holding 3 for my father in-law.
